Half Naked with Christine Evangelista

Half Naked with Christine Evangelista

By Embassy Row

I’m Christine Evangelista and I am obsessed with what is underneath. While designing my lingerie line I came to realize that conversations about our undergarments are often a gateway to a much more (ahem) revealing conversation. On this weekly podcast, my guests will bare it all as we discuss life, vulnerability and, of course, underwear! These funny, inspiring, and sometimes heartbreaking stories about our lives and our undergarments go to show that it is our vulnerabilities that truly connect us all - and we are never more vulnerable than when we are in our underwear. So let’s get cheeky!
